It is too hard to fake yourself day in and day out and let’s face it we want what we want.
Pretending we love sports or opera to reel in a partner is pathetic and defeating. Do you want a life doing the thing you most hate? Because the bloom does wear off and your ability to tolerate goes down the tube. You will end up alone anyway, alone with a reputation of being a liar.
BUT to just be able to be yourself and know that you have a safe place, a safe haven in someone’s heart, in their home, in their life … to just be you … complete with warts … is amazing. And a wonderful thing happens. Love blooms and it grows. And people bloom and grow. And YOU bloom and grow.
